* 17 *


As most of you know or have guessed I don't just sell knitted items in my Etsy shop I also sell patterns, Debi Birkin patterns to be exact. But what you might not know is that I also run Debi Birkin Pals group on Ravelry.
Just in case you don't know Ravelry is a knit/ crochet forum , a free site where you can talk about allsorts, share patterns basically just about anything.


Anyway this year the group is having a KAL or knit-a-long where every month you make a Bunty Bunny relevant to that particular month. I've got January sorted ,well I will have when I find my knitting mojo but I'm a bit stuck on February . I'd really like to do something other than Valentine related but I'm completely stuck for ideas......



Plus a friend of mine gave me a lovely present today , all this gorgeous yarn which is really crying out to be made into something special...... help?

Wow! Gorgeous colours of yarn, Lisa! No ideas what to make with it... but I love it!! I can't knit... well... I can knit squares! How hard is a bunny?! ;)

The yarn looks so soft and gorgeous! February is the start of the Chinese New Year - the year of the rabbit funny enough (I am a rabbit year). Maybe you could make a Chinese themed bunny!!! You could just sew the date 2011 across its jumper!

Goodness, I wish I had friends like that, that looks like some lovely yarn! I've not really heard of her so I'll check out more patterns and the group at Rav.

Great yarn Lisa. I just wish my brain could come up with an idea for you. Whatever you make I know it will be wonderful.

My first bunny is almost ready to be made up, maybe I should join the knit along, it sounds fun. Great yarn you have there, would make a lovely stripy scarf and beanie or beret ?

Love the muted colours of your gorgeous yarn, I am knitting a tunic with sublime soya cotton at the moment, it has wonderful drape.
